That portion of Wall. Cat. 643 C I), which is marked as having been collected by
Hamilton at Goalpara, in Eastern Bengal, close to Assam, is Hyalostewma. "We
have therefore omitted that locality, as the tree does not appear to occur on the east
of the Ganges, but to be conlincd to the drier regions of Bchar, and the eastern part
of the Madras Peninsula. It remains, however, to be determined whether or not the
species be not also a native of similar climates in the drier parts of A.va, if, as is pro-
bable, the last species consist of the leaves of this species with the flowers of some
other (probably G. tiimiarum}.
